As we all know, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and it’s vital to start your day right by filling up on good, wholesome food. Whether you’re eating breakfast solo with your morning paper, or enjoying a sociable brunch-time feast with loved ones, these avocado egg cups are one of my favourite ways to start a busy day.

Method

1 Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5.

2 Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone. Scoop out and roughly chop the inside flesh (into a bowl) leaving just a small sliver around the sides.

3 Crack the eggs into a cup and carefully transfer a yolk into each avocado half, then add in as much egg white as can fit without spilling. Season well with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Bake the avocado halves in the oven for 20–25 minutes until the eggs have cooked through.

4 Remove the baked avocado from the oven and place onto plates. Scatter spring onions and coriander over the top. Finish by crumbling over the feta cheese and serve with chilli jam.
